Day 1 - Nairobi to Amboseli National Park

A snowy plateau peeks out of the low-slung clouds, a white splash against a blue sky. An elephant, its massive tusks curved with age, parades by a pair of grazing zebras. Even though your van dances in the welcoming shadow of Tanzania's Kilimanjaro, you will be just over the border in Kenya's Amboseli National Park, a world of natural wonders.

The dramatic backdrop to your en-route game drive paints solitary trees and green grasses over the landscape. Renowned for its large population of free-ranging bush elephants, Amboseli also shelters wildebeest, African buffalo, zebras, black rhinos, and other plain animals, as well as 40 types of raptors and more than 400 bird species. Tonight, you will enjoy your dinner and stay overnight at Sentrim Amboseli Lodge. Only lunch and dinner will be included in this package on this first day.

Day 2 - Amboseli National Park

You will enjoy the luxury of time on today's twin game drives, as you venture deeper into Amboseli's savanna and bush. Search the skies and earth for the next photo op or animal sighting, both are ubiquitous in this diverse national park. Watching the famous elephants of the Amboseli ambling across the arid plains against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro is a very special and unforgettable experience. Tonight, you will still enjoy your dinner and stay overnight at Sentrim Amboseli Lodge.

Day 3 - Amboseli National Park to Lake NaKuru National Park

This time, you will descend down the mountain will take you out to the scenic Great Rift Valley, you will stop just shortly, at the valley's highest point (1,890 meters or 6,200 feet) and the site of a startling blue-green lake and undulating mountains.

Today, you will ride to Lake Nakuru, a freshwater lake famed not for hippos but for its lovely pink-rimmed shoreline. Your first glimpse of the lake reveals the source, thousands of blush-toned flamingos crowd the perimeter, thick enough to create an optical illusion of fallen petals or fine, pink sands.

The lake is not the only thing to see, there are swamps and marshlands that give refuge to more than 400 aquatic and terrestrial bird species, yellow acacia trees that dot the open plains, and hills that rise to ridges and fall again into bushy grassland. Your game drive reveals dozens of animals, from iconic African buffalo and giraffes to laughing hyenas and dancing zebra. You will enjoy your dinner and stay overnight at Sentrim Elementaita Lodge.

Day 4 - Lake Nakuru to Naivasha

Grey bumps dapple the waters of Lake Naivasha like giant boulders, boulders with teeth, that is. The hulking masses are not rocks, but grinning hippos that share the lake with pink-hued flamingos, imposing antelope, long-necked giraffes, and countless other animals that seeks sustenance from the lake. If you wish, at an additional cost, you will also be able to visit Crescent Island to view hippos (payable directly). Tonight, you will still enjoy your dinner and stay overnight at Sentrim Elementaita Lodge.

Day 5 - Lake Elementaita to Maasai Mara

A leopard sprints through knee-high grass, its sights riveted on its prey. A mother elephant pushes her young calf to water, teaching him to bathe in the refreshing liquid. Hippos, their thick skin coated in mud, wade into a river lined with crocodiles. Young lions wrestle in a rough-and-tumble match to develop their prowess and hone their strength. You have arrived at the Maasai Mara, the Africa you have always imagined.

An afternoon game drive through the national reserve is everything you can imagine and more, always more. This is your first opportunity to spot, in one fell swoop, all of Africa's big five, African buffalo, black rhinos, bush elephants, leopards, and lions. These imposing predators, once considered a hunter's most dangerous game, are today a wildlife aficionado's greatest wish, and a wish come true in Maasai Mara. For tonight, you will enjoy your dinner and overnight at Sentrim Mara Lodge.

Day 6 - Maasai Mara

In the glow of dawn, pale light trickles over the horizon until suddenly the sun's fiery orb explodes into view. Its golden rays illuminate the savanna, glinting red and orange off the grassy plains. The bush awakens, sending thirsty elephants and zebra to the closest watering hole. Leopard cubs roughhouse in playful greeting to the morning.

The day's game drive provide ample opportunities for wildlife spotting. After checking the big five off your list, you will set your sights on one of the region's most awaited events, the great migration, which will occur from July 1 to October 31. This, the eighth wonder of the world, marks an annual journey, the largest land animal migration on the planet.

Every year, 750,000 zebras and millions of wildebeest make the pilgrimage from Tanzania's Serengeti to the Maasai Mara, in search of shelter and sustenance. Time your trip right, and you will arrive to witness this incredible event. You will enjoy your dinner and stay overnight at Sentrim Mara Lodge.

Day 7 - Maasai Mara to Nairobi

Have you ever dreamed of sharing the clouds with birds while the wind whipping through your hair as the current sends you soaring ever higher? The muted colors of dawn unfold below, highlighting the boundless quiet of sunrise over the Maasai Mara. This optional hot air balloon ride is the perfect goodbye to these spotted plains, an exhilarating view to the African bush from heights known only to the birds that live here.
